DevOps is a software development method that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and IT professionals or operations staff. DevOps is a response to the interdependence of software development and IT operations. It aims to help an organization rapidly produce software products and services. DevOps is all the rage these days. It was a prominent fixture at both IBM Innovate 2013 and Microsoft TechEd 2013 over the past week. At Innovate, IBM announced new initiatives to expand the development capabilities of IBM's SmartCloud and IBM MobileFirst offerings and shore up the company's foray into the world of DevOps. Kristof Kloeckner, general manager of IBM Rational Software, said DevOps is an integrated approach to software delivery that incorporates an organization's culture, processes and tools. It spans the entire lifecycle, from business planning and creation to delivery and feedback. The goal of DevOps is to enable continuous software delivery allowing businesses to quickly seize market opportunities and better meet client demands. This slide show takes a look at IBM's view on putting DevOps to work.
